July 28, 2019 at 9:52 AM Another scorcher today, some relief through the workweek. Strong high pressure over Interior Northern California will result in hot temperatures with triple digit heat in the Central Valley and portions of the surrounding foothills. Consequently, a Heat Advisory will remain in effect until 11 PM tonight. After a mild overnight, the region is already off to a warm start compared to yesterday. While forecast temperatures are above normal, no records are anticipated. The excessive heat should be short lived as the upper ridge will retreat toward the east allowing for a return to typical late July temperatures starting Monday. There will also be greater influence from the Delta breeze with occasionally gusty winds in the vicinity of the Delta

July 25, 2019 at 5:12 PM Current Ozone AQI levels in the Auburn area have reached: 151 AQI (Unhealthy) on Thursday, July 25.
Ozone AQI 151-200 Children and people with asthma are the groups most at risk. There is a greater likelihood of respiratory symptoms and breathing difficulty in active children and adults and people with respiratory disease; respiratory effects may also occur in the general population. U.S. EPA cautions that “active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. Everyone else, especially children, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.” ‘Prolonged’ generally means lasting four or more hours with short rest periods. ‘Heavy exertion” is that which would increase the resting breathing rate four fold or greater. You can reduce exposure to ozone by: – Exercising in the morning before air quality reaches unhealthy levels – Reducing the intensity and duration of your outdoor activities in the afternoon – Remaining indoors during pollution episodes

July 3, 2019 at 5:50 AM Average temperatures today, warming trend over the holiday weekend. Highs today will be close to average across the region.
July 2, 2019 at 10:40 AM NortOps: Lower elevations (below 3000′) will see increasing grass fire occurrence in July, and the potential of fires there growing to large sizes is Above Normal. Middle elevations (3000-6000 ft) will gradually dry out a normal to slightly slower than normal rate, reaching above normal significant fire potential in many areas by late July or August. El Niño patterns during summer months tend to correlate with a prevailing SW-W flow aloft, leading to fewer monsoon surges into the North Ops region, and therefore, less lightning occurrence than usual. Full report: NorthOps Significant Fire Potential Forecast July through October
July 2, 2019 at 8:10 AM Dry, breezy and average temperatures for the rest of the week.
